In key markets around the globe, governments have adopted regulatory frameworks to manage the risks that chemicals may pose. These regulations control the manufacture, importation, use, and marketing of chemicals. Some programs have longstanding requirements while others are rapidly evolving and potentially represent a new management paradigm. Verdant can help clients achieve their compliance objectives.
Verdant has six principal areas of practice. Each of these has a substantial focus on the regulation of industrial, commercial, and consumer products. The Firm provides sustainability-related legal services in each area, as well as more “traditional” environmental, health, and safety-related legal services.
Let Verdant provide the legal engineering to put you on the path to sustainability.
Nanotechnology is a relatively new field receiving significant attention because of its promise and its unknowns. The development and commercialization of nanomaterials and nanotechnology-enabled products poses many risks for companies, including noncompliance with a variety of regulatory requirements, legal liability for damages, and loss of market acceptance. Verdant has worked substantially with nanotechnology issues to enable clients in their efforts to manage these risks.
Air and water and the services they provide are essential to sustainable development. In the United States, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act are the primary statutes protecting the quality of ambient air and surface water. Verdant can assist clients in their efforts to understand the regulations, seek the necessary approvals, defend products from overly restrictive proposals, as well as perform internal audits and defend against allegations of noncompliance.
